Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Continuing the life of Rosie in the Derbyshire village where she inherited her aunt’s sweetshop. You don’t need to have read the first to enjoy this but you’ll enjoy knowing the major players better if you have. Rosie is in love with Stephen, the damaged son of the village matriarch, who is now a teacher in the village school. Christmas brings Rosie’s family over from Australia, her mother, brother, his wife and children. Their arrival makes her realise just how much she has missed them and she wonders about Stephen’s intentions. This is the joy of this delightful book: will he, won’t he …? Should she, shouldn’t she …? And you are kept guessing right through. A lovely, lovely read. The first in the series, Welcome to Rosie Hopkin’s Sweetshop of Dreams won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award (2013)
